它的正式名称是塞维利亚的城堡，它是一座皇宫，虽然它最初摩尔式城堡。It’s the oldest royal palace still in use in Europe and is considered to be one of the best remaining examples of Mudejar architecture, the name given to a particular style that was prominent from the 12th to 16th centuries and was strongly influenced by Moorish taste and workmanship.
尽管宫是难以置信的,一定要包括ude time in your visit for the gardens. They are simply spectacular, not to mention massive! Never would you think after stepping through the gates to the Alcazar from the Plaza del Triunfo that such a space of greenery lies there (it’s the same with a nearby attraction, Parque de Maria Luisa). The Jardín Inglés, modeled on 18th-century English gardens, dates to 1909, and the Jardín de los Poetas (Poets’ Garden) features two ponds that are reminiscent of those once designed by the Moors.
I loved visiting the Alcazar and thought to myself after visiting that it was definitely a place I should return to while still living in Sevilla. That it would be wonderful to come back and simply enjoy the gardens, either doing homework or writing in my journal. Sadly, I never did. It’s one of those innumerable travel regrets I still have, almost a decade later.
